Re: HD for the elderly- need some suggestions

Mrs. Oldgringo and I are both in our late 70's and duly licensed. Both vehicles are armed as well as the house and our modest RV. Guns are one thing, willingness to use them is a horse of another color.

Good night and good luck.

Re: Springfield 1903 rebuild

The absolute WORST gun mistake I ever made was with a 1903 Springfield. I got an unissued 1903 A4 from the DCM back in the early '60's for <$20.

Re: NBA season to reopen with out front support for BLM

NBA and BLM deserve each other. I'm sick of their systemic racism aimed at us privileged, but short white folk!

Re: Let’s talk .22 pistols

Well you said you wanted a semi, and I've got a couple. But my favorite .22 handgun is my Ruger Single Six. And I use it more often with magnum ammo than .22Lr. It comes with interchangeable cylinders so you get two revolvers in one. I, too, have a Ruger Single Six Convertible and loads of boolits ...

Re: Nadler(D-NY) Calls Antifa Violence A 'Myth' In Stunning Example Of DC Disconnect

In a perfect example of the disconnect between Ivory tower Democrats and reality, Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) gave a shocking answer when writer-producer Austen Fletcher asked him if he would disavow Antifa violence in cities like Portland. After a brief pause, Nadler said it was a "myth that's being ...

Wait, I’m bit foggy on this maybe but I thought this was to withdraw all United States Armed Forces from Afghanistan and they got more yay’s, so withdraw?
